“Attentive service and fine food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

We were immensely pleased by our dinner at Bistrot de Venise. We chose items from the sampling menu, ably assisted by our captain/waiter, Walter (who speaks 6 languages). We were pleasantly surprised that the food was less expensive than we had feared. The staff was very attentive, from the wine steward to the bus boys. The delicate flavors emerged fully from these traditional Venetian dishes. We recommend it highly.

“Our best eating experience in Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had dinner there on May 2, first night in Venice, first night in Italy, and it set the standard for ristorantes to come. As soon as we were seated (and they knew us immediately when we arrived because we had a reservation?), Vivaldi's Four Season's (Autumn) began playing. It was if it was timed! My husband is not an adventurous eater (though Italian) but he was delighted with the food and the wine choices. Walter, our server, was witty and professional and extremely knowledgable and helpful in selecting entrees and wines. Tom had a ravioli dish that they specialized for him, and I had the "Carbonara" with Scampi (26 Euros). Plenty of breads (of course) and salad. We chose the tiramisu as it (arguably) originated in Venice and it was better than any I had eaten before but I'm not real keen on tiramisu anyway. We were also served dessert wines and canapes. Wonderful experience and we have talked about this experience often. RECOMMENDED! (Menu is available online)

“Splendid, formal meal in Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

This is a more formal restaurant than many in Venice with lovely food and knowledgeable staff.
The food was delicious (the black ink cuttlefish first course was massive) and the atmosphere and service were impeccable.
Highly recommended.

“With the tide rise we had an amazing meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

We like to eat at exceptional places and Bistrot de Venice certainly met that criteria. The food was great, and the service was impeccable. It was a perfect way to end the first day at a wonderful city.
If you go there say hi to Sergio

“Simply the best restaurant in Venice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

We went to many restaurants in Venice. This one is for sure the best of all. Provably of Italy too. Original and, at the same time, traditional. We had typical piatti that were beyond description. The desserts were also unbelievable: unexpected flavors leading to extraordinary delight feelings... Setting and music also perfect. Service was fantastic (Congratulazioni, Davide!).
